Newburyport and Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 05, 2016 -- An innovative web video series, “1 in One Hundred Million™”, that shares the personal stories of the people who perform the many jobs that often go unrecognized, earned a prestigious Platinum Remi award for Best Web Series at The 49th Annual Worldfest-Houston, the world’s oldest independent film and video competition and among the largest.
The series was written and produced by brand development and marketing firm Mechanica and video, multimedia, and film production company Parallax Productions on behalf of Kronos Incorporated, a $1+ billion dollar software company and the global leader in workforce management solutions in the cloud. Five-time Emmy award-winning director and producer Alan Chebot directed the series while Lea Thau, a Peabody Award-winning producer and creator of The Moth Radio Hour, conducted many of the interviews.
Since the launch of “1 in One Hundred Million” in August 2014, 18 web videos have been produced and shared at 1in100million, and viewed nearly 5M times. The series was heralded at the recent Worldfest 2016, which was attended by more than 600 international filmmakers representing 74 countries. The 10-day festival has more than 4,500 competitive categories but only 15 percent win a Remi award.
“To say that we’re excited that ‘1 in One Hundred Million’ is being recognized by one of the world’s premier film and video competitions is an understatement,” said Stephan Gray, vice president, corporate marketing at Kronos. “We’re also very excited for the everyday heroes featured in each of the videos and proud of the achievements of our creative partners – Mechanica and Parallax. This video series has been a total team effort from day one.”
Recent episodes of “1 in One Hundred Million” include:
● “Shine On,” the story of the person responsible for creating a 360° visual experience with hundreds of lights for Le Reve – The Dream at Wynn Las Vegas, voted the Best Production Show in Las Vegas.
